Press review

"I honestly have to admit that my expectations in advance were many and high, but to my great joy, they were fulfilled. Akt 5/Fantastic Four takes the theatre experience and the joy of theatre seriously. I feel very much present, and serious thinking is encouraged. There is no room just to lean back here, something is demanded of you. Perhaps naturally, considering Europe is here who is at trial? The company builds the productions on elements by surprise, and the joy of such I do not wish to rob expectant audience members. But I can reveal that I have been washed and branded and that I am now a lucky citizen of the new world union. Those of us who are allowed to join are enthusiastically welcomed by the third world. With this production the fantastic four has demonstrated that they do take us seriously, and we should take them as seriously. I hope the revolution won’t end here."
